The Saints, who play their home games at Richardson Field in Rancho Santa Fe, earned the 4th seed after pool play games on Saturday, June 12, then won three consecutive playoff games on Sunday, June 13, to win the tournament. Over the course of the tournament, the Saints were undefeated and outscored their opponents by a 61 to 11 margin.
